As we prepare to launch this fall, Map Academy is recruiting exceptional educators who are:
- outside-the-box, entrepreneurial thinkers drawn to the amazing opportunity to help us build an innovative high school from the ground up.
- passionate about working with youth who have been failed by traditional systems, and
- compelled to disrupt the status quo in order to help all students thrive.
Map Academy–a new public high school in Plymouth, Massachusetts–is founded on the belief that every student can succeed. For far too many youth, however, one theme is consistent: they feel overwhelmed by life, both in and out of school and disengaged from the education they want and know that they need. Well-intentioned policies, structures, and curriculum delivery models used in traditional high schools drive too many students away from possibility. They are looking for relevance, for meaning, and for hope. These are the youth who most need our support; those whose struggles in and out of school make success a steep uphill climb. They need and deserve more. Map Academy is designed for them.
In creating Map Academy, we put students at the center of every choice and designed a school flexible enough to meet students where they are when they enroll, and personalized enough to increase expectations as they develop the academic, personal, and social tools they need for success in high school and life after graduation.
Competency-based, student-centered, and trauma sensitive, Map Academy is a haven for disconnected and underserved students who have disengaged from their education. Student-centered academics, a highly supportive culture, and career development opportunities equip students with the knowledge, mindsets, and skills to meet the high standards necessary for postsecondary education and meaningful employment.
